 Board Opportunities

Dress for Success Pittsburgh is recruiting new board members. We’ve recently refreshed our strategic plan and need a few more helping hands to ensure the success of our plans and the growth of the organization. We have expanded our reach across the region, serving women in Allegheny, Butler, Fayette, Greene, and Washington counties and welcome board members who work/live in those areas.

We would particularly like to connect with professionals who are skilled in the following areas:

  • Human Resources
  • Technology
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

If your skillset isn't an exact match to those listed above but you know that you would make a great addition, please don’t hesitate to apply – the most important trait is a commitment to serve and a passion for empowering women. Please know that while we are an organization that serves women, our board membership is diverse and inclusive.
